PLEASE HELP! Fantasy championship dilemma! WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Sat Sep 24, 2011 12:09 am

12-team H2H keeper league

R HR RBI SB K TB AVG OBP IP W L SV BB K ERA WHIP TOTAL
22 5 34 1 25 71 .313 .381 25.2 1 0 3 4 21 1.40 0.94 8 MarcumUp
28 7 20 1 22 76 .295 .367 55.2 5 2 1 13 44 3.23 1.19 7 Cheese&Yakker

I'm currently in the championship, and this is the matchup scoreboard. Sorry it is so scrunched up. I am MarcumUp&KnockEmDown (the top team), so I am winning 8 - 7. Our minimum innings pitched is 24, so I qualify to win L's,BB's, ERA, and WHIP. And I should be able to win SV's too. Knowing all this, I am going to drop Sabathia since I won't be keeping him, and I am going to try to pick up the best option off the FA. Also should I consider dropping Matt Holliday? I keep hearing differing reports on whether or not he is going to play again in the regular season. I'm leaning towards keeping him just in case he comes back and starts hitting again.

In parenthesis is the round they can be kept in next season, and I can only keep 7.
Roster:
C - Mike Napoli (10th Round)
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Dan Uggla
3B - Adrian Beltre
SS - Jose Reyes (3rd Round)
OF - Michael Morse (6th round)
OF - Vladimi Guerrero (9th Round)
OF - Carlos Lee
UTIL - David Wright
BN - Drew Stubbs
BN - Jay Bruce
BN - Matt Holliday

SP - CC Sabathia
SP - Chris Carpenter (6th Round)
RP - Jose Valverde
RP - Andrew Bailey
RP - Brian Wilson
SP - Johnny Cueto (17th round)
SP - Shaun Marcum (6th round)
SP - Brandon Beachy (19th Round)
SP - Trevor Cahill (13th Round)


Here are the FA options:
Ben Revere
Chris Parmelee
James Loney
Eric Young
Alejandro De Aza
Mike Aviles
Robert Andino
Travis Hafner
John Mayberry
Marco Scutaro
Nolan Reimold


Who should I drop Sabathia for? and should I consider dropping Carpenter for someone too?

I'm not really enticed by any of the FA. Given the list I would go with Ben Revere since he is hot and you could use the SB.
Carpenter should have another start on Wed so I would hold on to him.

Should I start another SP though? I reached the minimum innings required and I have a stellar ERA and WHIP. Plus I would be guarenteed to take L's, BB's, ERA, and WHIP if I dont play another SP and just stick with my closers.

I would opt for revere or mayberry -- revere for the SB and Mayberry for general production since they may rest other regulars.

I would hang onto carpenter as a "wait and see" in case something happens with his pitching where it makes sense for u to pitch him.

Can you PM me on whether it makes sense to put a claim on Ted Lilly? Oddly, my opponent dropped Lilly after last nights start and picked up Bud Norris. But Lilly might (should?) have a start on the wednesday finale @Ari. Will he? Is it worth it or are there other SP streamers I should target? We each hAve 1 move left for the finals.

Loney is pretty hot right now. Revere too. That's all that looks enticing to me.
